Visitor Information



BoatLife Live is a celebration of being out on the water, whether you live on the coast or by a river, canal or lake. And for the first time, boating is leaving its southern heartlands and coming to the Midlands to satisfy a growing passion for the life on the water aquatic.

From 17-20 February 2022, the inaugural BoatLife Live will take over NEC Birmingham  (Halls 17-19) to kick off the new season. Climb aboard and check out the best boat brands and latest models, hear from industry experts or try out sailing in virtual reality.

Join old friends and make new ones at the replica traditional riverside pub and Mediterranean bar, listen to live music, sample delicious food from a range of eateries and enjoy the energy of a great family day out.

Whether you’re here to discover a new hobby or see where your next boating adventure leads you, escape land life and embrace BoatLife.
